"Office" Gossip Is a Hoot

Tonight's Best Viewing: "The Office," 9 p.m., WGRZ-TV.

With Pam (Jenna Fischer) and Jim  (John  Krasinski) getting married in Niagara Falls in a future episode, more local people have become interested in the NBC comedy, "The Office."

If you haven't seen one episode, tonight's season premiere, "Gossip," is a pretty good way to be introduced to the cluelessness and clumsiness of lead character Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

Feeling left out about inconsequential office gossip about summer interns, Michael begins to gossip about things that could hurt many of his full-time workers at the Dunder Mifflin paper company. His cover-up is worse -- and funnier -- than his initial crime. One character -- regular viewers might be able to guess which one -- even begins to question whether a rumor he's heard about himself is true.

Enjoy. Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 4
